Again with the socks!
I saved up posting on these because I had to wait until they were received – these travelled all the way to chilly Canada, to warm the tootsies of the lovely Michele (click on the linky
for some tootsie warming action and imagine a bit “phew they fit” from me!).
Log Cabin Socks by Anne Woodbury, from Handknit Holidays
. This is the second time
I’ve made these socks – love the pattern, so warm and cosy and quick to knit in aran or even chunkier weight yarn. I made the women’s size for Michele’s socks as she seemed to have slim legs and ankles and small feet (can I tell you just how hard it is to guestimate size when you only know someone over the internet! How lucky was I that one day Michele decided to post a picture of her shoes, at about the time I was making these socks!!)
I love how the cable pattern continues down the heel.
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, 2.5 x 50g balls, in colour 200305, a lovely stormy blue. Love knitting with this yarn – so soft and squooshy.
Sticks: I forgot! These were my first magic looped socks!! I started out on dpns and then thought that I’d try magic loop – and I love it!! I still use dpns too, but magic loop, mmm, it’s good!
Time: 1 October 2007 (right on time for Southern Summer of Socks!) – 18 October 2007 – see, I told you they were quick! It’s just that I took so long to post them off…
What I learnt: Magic loop!
